Mine varies from time to time but at the moment it seems to be "amazing" and "fantastic". How about you?
I say it with a real west country accent too, as a result of which everyone takes the piss :(
see also: 'awesome', 'man' and 'rad'.
Say it all the damn time.
also: "i guess"
it'd be 'roof-rack'
I've already said it to you at least 12 times today.
sorry. Thats 4 now.
you can never say it too much.
I need new positive words!
i say awesome too much. awesome's a rubbish word.
but I trained myself out of it. I don't like rad, I don't like 'ace' either. I like words with more than one syllable and that weren't 'buzz words' 10 years ago.
says 'You know what I mean' far far too much
its more 'uknowamean' though
sometimes I hate myself.
I don't even like the word.
I call people "dude" far more than any non-American should.
It started between me and a group of mates having an in-joke about an alleged sequel to "Dude Where's My Car" called "Seriously Dude, where's my car?" (which led to us starting every sentence with "Seriously dude" but I now seem to be stuck with it.
try speaking without saying "like". its impossible
"like" at the end of sentences
I use a lot of pointless filler phrases like "in many ways" and "in a very real sense"
I don't understand how you can ever use that without sounding really pretentious!
I have never heard/seen you say it and I can't think of a way in which it could be said without it sounding pretentious.
was intended to mean "yes, I like sounding pretentious", or something. To be fair, I think I only ever say that one when being faux-pretentious. But I will take offence anyway, because I know you like it.
"to be fair"/"to be honest"
they make the following/preceding sentence sound a little bit more of worth and meaning.
...you think it's adding gravitas and poignancy to any statement, but, really it just sounds a bit pompous!
I use it all the time!
Also, 'the thing is..'
'That's the thing...'
I know because I started saying it too :(
why does everyone think I am fucking twee?
LIKE LIKE LIKE LIKE
I probably say like too much but if I didn't then my stutter would become far too apparent for my liking.
try using other words that like, mean like but dont
SHUT UP DICKHEAD STOP SAYING IT
far too much.
now it is probably "fuck" as in "off" and "cunt" as in "you".
brilliant, i love that. i am going to use that now.
for fuck's sake.
"awesome" (i hate this word a lot)
is an awful word!
i say 'like' too much and 'Really?' and probably 'jeez' as well thanks to my SAfrican friends.
'bbz' and using '<3'!!
Them: "Yeah and then it turned out that the pickle was like handmade and not out of a jar."
Followed by me internally berating myself for attributing awe to such a notably un-awesome factlette or event.
is of the devil. I am so glad I managed to stop saying it.
I need to quit saying 'bigtime'.
I love you j_bo.
I'm guilt of all of the above also.
"rad" is a new and unwanted addition to my idiotic London surf kid dialect.
dang pub work
sure thing, bingo wing.
i swear i'm some sort of 70s hippie in disguise.
without a doubt
so i says to mabel i says
I also overuse "for sure" [far too much] and "for real".
thank you very much
it's people like you who are killing the earth!
and never come back
I think it's an unconscious thing that comes out when my sentences are too short and need something at the end to make it sound like I've said something interesting. Or something...
hangovers from a year in canada
a pretty DAMN coolios list.
'FUCK THAT SHIT SERIOUSLY.'
which isn't a bad word, but sounds really silly when said by non-English people.
funky funky funky.
I sometimes steal a Brit slang word here... and typing on DiS ain't no big deal but saying, "crikey", "rubbish", "mate", "ace", etc sounds crikey rubbish and not very ace or brilliant mateys to me other American friends... and sounds downright pretenious.
I do like "cunt" and use it frequently. It has the effect "fuck" used to have. :)
I type "meh" all the time and I'm still not sure how it's pronounced. Kinda "maaaaa"?
Please recommend me other brilliant ace British phrases that I can get away with as an American. English slang rules!
'i'm just off down the paki shop'
iggy pop proved you lot are allowed to use that one
and currently ending sentences in 'arr mate!' which is awful it really is especialy in my scouse accent'
